Pedal on Parliament

This weekend I took part helping out at the Pedal on Parliament cycle demo in Glasgow. We started off at Pollock park with a feeder ride that took us into Glasgow Green for the main event. it was an inspiring day with a very diverse bunch of people together trying to bring awareness of making our cities cycle friendly.

Lucky Beans

Last Tuesday, I went to the newly opened KAF café in Glasgow’s Partick. Its a beautifully designed space serving Scandinavian inspired food with carefully selected coffee on rotation.
